World famous luxury cruise vessel Queen Mary 2 calls at Colombo

World famous luxury cruise vessel Queen Mary 2 calls at Colombo

RMS Queen Mary 2, the flagship of the Cunard Line, arrived in Colombo, on Friday 6 February.

The vessel was on her world voyage 2015 and arrived in Colombo from the Port of Cochin in India. She left Colombo at 2000 hours towards her next port, Phuket in Thailand.

Capt. L.N. Jayasooriya of Shipping Agency Services Ltd. indicated that the company was privileged to represent premium brands of the prestigious Carnival Corporation and was happy about the contributions made to the Sri Lanka Port Authority and to the tourism industry by these high profile vessel calls in Sri Lanka.
Over 1,000 passengers travelled on excursions to Kandy, Pinnawala, Ingiriya and on city tours. The ground tours were arranged by Exotic Holidays International.

With a length overall of 345 m and a total of 17 decks, The Queen Mary 2 is the largest, longest and most expensive North Atlantic liner ever built – a virtual city at sea.

She has a passenger capacity of 2,620 and 1,253 Officers and crew on board.
Built in Saint-Nazaire, France, the vessel was commissioned by Queen Elizabeth II in January 2004.

The facilities on board Queen Mary 2 include 15 restaurants and bars, five swimming pools, a casino, a ballroom, a theatre, and the first planetarium at sea.
The Queen Mary 2 had the Royal Mail Ship (RMS) title conferred on her as a gesture to the Cunard Line’s history by Royal Mail, when she entered service in 2004 on the Southampton to New York route.

Carnival UK commenced its vessel calls in Sri Lanka in 2012 after a lapse of many years.

Since then, the Queen Mary 2, Queen Elizabeth and Queen Victoria have been calling in Colombo on their world voyages.
